The rich are indeed different from us, and by different I mean delusional.

Carly Fiorina has clearly been listening to those demon sheep of hers instead of facing reality.

Good old Carly "There is no job that is America's God-given right anymore. We have to compete for jobs as a nation." Fiorina.

This rule doesn't apply if you're a CEO, of course. Then you can fuck up one company after another and just keep getting bigger rewards for doing so.

This is rich coming from Fiorina. Yeah Carly, it's so terrible that union workers get benefits but we're terrible socialists if we question why executives like you receive bonuses that are considerably bigger than the median income in this country. Give me a fucking break.

Just how little should a worker be paid? Seriously, should we open up work camps where the workers are paid in sawdust bread and water soup?

What the fuck is the GOP doing arguing like this? I never understood the GOP base being angry people earn a middle class wage because of unions.

I know they claim the anger is because union compensations are blamed for companies losing money but I never hear them complain about executive pay and golden parachutes. It is bizarre to me the GOP base argues these point on online forums.

Best I can guess is:

A) envy and hatred at union workers, especially public sector workers because the GOP base works in non union low paying jobs. Instead of anger at their employers, they are angry at fellow workers doing better than they are.

B) They listen to so much right wing noise machine in the bubble they just link unions with Democrats and they don't think beyond that.

C) Racism. They see lots of blacks and minorities in the public sector work force (post office or DMV for example) and that they hate that they have to deal with minorities and pay their salaries.

Any or all of these explanations probably plays a role in why the GOP base shows such animus to unions, especially public sector unions.

There is a reason why she isn't the junior senator from California. Thank heavens.

What class warfare? It seems that there are people who could have a billion dollars. Zillions. Everything they ever needed. But if they saw a person rubbing two quarters together smiling, it wasn't enough.

It's like I said before: Locust mentality.

They latch on, transfer as much wealth and resources to the top (executives and shareholders) as possible and the abandon ship (with a golden parachute to boot!)

And who gets shafted the most? The poor, incredibly hard working suckers on the bottom of the ladder.
